The AONB Partnership

Twenty six organisations, including the AONB, work together to make up the Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB Partnership, under the Chairmanship of Cllr David Wood.

Formed in 1993, the Partnership comprises public, private and voluntary organisations who are committed to conserving and enhancing the natural beauty of the AONB.  The Partnership's role is to oversee delivery of the AONB Management Plan. It meets twice a year to discuss significant issues in the AONB, and delivery of the Plan, to which all partners are signed up.

The AONB Partnership also continues to develop a number of Position Statements on key issues affecting the area.
